Panel of Army Officers Found Army E-4 Not Guilty

Army E-4 allegedly tested positive on a military urinalysis test. His command offered him non-judicial punishment. Following our advice, and against the advice of his military defense counsel, he refused to accept non-judicial punishment and demanded a court-martial. At that court-martial, we focused our defense on the flawed collection procedures used by our client’s command. We specifically highlighted numerous errors that occurred during the collection of our client’s sample, to include one error overlooked by both the unit’s collection personnel, the base’s collection personnel, and the testing laboratory that should have rendered the sample untestable. At the close of the government’s case, the defense rested without needing to present any evidence at all. RESULT: A panel of Army officers found our client NOT GUILTY of the charge against him.
